Music Clip of the Month/ 1-11

Old Wives' "Teen Commandements" (2010)

BY EMIL TIEDEMANN


LAST February (as in 2010), Liam Harvey (lead vocals), Ryan Dix (bass), T.S. (guitar) and The DRRN (drums)--collectively known as pop-punk players Old Wives--were featured as the Band of the Month on local radio station Sonic 102.9.

That's how many Edmontonians, this guy included, first heard of these "three dudes from Edmonton and one random from Halifax that play awesome pop punk together."

Formed in about '07, these mostly homeschooled brothers with a pastor father have been playing in bands for the last decade or so. In August '09 they travelled to the States to do their first shows there, and to record an album (See You In Hell) at the same studio where Rise Against and Alkaline Trio have set down tracks.

The video clip below featured Old Wives performing the album's track "Teen Commandments" at the Vue Weekly Studio last April. The band will play Edmonton next on February 5th (a Saturday) at the DV8 Tavern (8307-99 St.), with Weekend Kids, Freshman Years, and the Mange.
